Fuel cells are appealing energy generation gadgets due to their high performance, advanced electricity density, low emissions and quiet operation. Among exceptional types of fuel cells, solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC) provide greater flexibility due to the fact that they can run on a diffusion of fuels and are tolerant to impurities within the realistic fuels. Additive manufacturing (AM) strategies allow the fabrication of complicated parts with the desired composition, microstructure and properties directly from the computer-aided design (CAD) models. Additive production era to SOFC will allow extra complex and advanced cell and stack designs to be manufactural, regardless of steel-supported or ceramic-supported structure. Fabrication of whole monolithic fuel cell stacks in fewer or even a single step without successive assembly require a brilliant approach. This paper attempts to review the latest applications of additive manufacturing tactics in SOFC development and production, binder jetting, spraying, extrusion, lithography-primarily based, and laser sintering.
